Unique presents for the new baby – with the magical protective powers of the Indalo
Ideal presents for a Baby Shower
Good luck gifts are ideal presents to bring good luck to the baby, or for the guests at a Baby Shower
More common in the United States, a Baby Shower is held to rejoice in the pending arrival of a newborn baby boy or girl, or to celebrate the recent birth. In the Christian faith, there’s also the Christening. “Weetin the heed o’ the bern” (or wetting the child’s head), is a tradition in Scotland that dates back thousands of years; However, it is an almost universal custom to ensure that a baby has good luck in life, whatever the parents’ religion. In Scotland, a bottle of whiskey is usually produced for the occasion and hastily consumed by the new father and the menfolk of the area. In the past, it was not uncommon for the child’s first drink to be from this bottle (administered by a teaspoon – preferably silver).

In days gone by, parents used to be advised to be careful and guard over their new baby lest bad spirits or wicked fairies took control. Even today, superstition generally requires that we offer some sort of gift to the newborn child, its parents or Godparents as a means of protection for the the baby and to wish the child good fortune. In ancient Celtic folklore, it was believed that an unprotected babt could be abducted by fairies of the elfin tribe who left ugly fairies in their stead (changelings).
Other customs include exposing your newborn baby to the waxing moon to give the child strength and good luck, and gifting a new baby with all manner of tokens to ward off the evil eye and bring prosperity. Even in modern America, the baby shower reflects some of these old customs and superstitions, and gifts are given to the guests as well.
We also have hand-crafted lucky charms which come from Almeria in southern Spain close to where the original Indalos were discovered. This is a region of ancient culture believed to be the origin of the Neolithic civilisation that spread up into the whole of northern Europe between 4000 and 2000 BC – and the beginning of a megalithic era that was one of the great periods of Spanish and European history and included the construction of the mystical monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury in Britain. Cave paintings of Indalo-type shapes mingle with representations of suns, spirals, animals and labyrinths, each with their own mystical and esoteric meaning.
The Indalo shape (whether it be classical like Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, or spiritual as in the Rainbow Warrior of the ancient North American Indian Cree tribe), is a popular symbol (like the clover leaf, horseshoe, or ladybird) used to pass on good luck sentiments to friends and family.
